Happy Birthday Hudson!

How in the world have the last two years gone so quickly!?!  This morning we work up Hudson by all going into his room and singing him Happy Birthday.  Last night Jeff and I had blown up a pack of balloons and put them in the floor of Hudson’s room. 


Landree said Hudson really wanted to go to Krispy Kreme for breakfast and how could we argue with that?  So we let him open up a present got dressed and headed out for a breakfast of champions-donuts!

Hudson loved his new car!  He loves to tinker and use tools, and his new car can be ‘fixed’ and raced. Fun!


The birthday boy can wear the same shirt that he wore on his birthday last year.  Here’s a little look back.  Pretty much the same but taller, more hair, and even more handsome.

Back to the birthday breakfast-After picking our favorites we got settled in and ready to eat!  Hudson and Landree loved every minute of their junky breakfast.  Hudson keep saying he wanted more.  I think all in all he ate 2 1/2 or 3 donuts.  We finally cut him off.  I was afraid he would be sick.

After breakfast we headed to Target to let Hudson pick out a little prize.  We thought it would be fun for him to get some new cars to go with the cute car rug Grandma and Papa sent him for his birthday.  He loves the Cars cars, but after looking around Target until all of our hearts content.  Landree went away with a mile long list and Hudson only wanted a ball.  Cheap date :)  It was only 2.20!  Somehow I don’t think we’ll get out that cheap when it’s Landree’s turn. 

I made the yummiest and easiest pulled pork for lunch.  You can’t go wrong with the Pioneer Woman.  Landree and Hudson weren’t fans, but Jeff and I liked it on Sandwiches for lunch and in tacos for dinner.  I ended up making Hudson a PB sandwich because he NEEDED something besides sugar.  Then he headed to rest, and Landree and I started making cupcakes! 


She is such a good helper and makes it so easy clean up since she licks all the bowls, spoons and beaters clean for me. 

When Hudson woke up we had our cupcakes and sang Happy Birthday again.  He was so happy and then…


The tears started flowing…I think the fire scared him.  So we blew out the candles and then had cake. 


Happy again!


Then more presents:  We showed Hudson his new water table before heading outside to play with it.  He also got a bubble blowing lawnmower-if it really cut the grass we’d be in good shape.

Tonight Landree and I headed to a birthday party for one of her friends while Daddy and Hud had a little father son time watching, How to Train Your Dragon.  We finished off the evening with the kids bouncing on the birthday balloons and playing in Hudson’s room before bedtime.  It was a great day! 

We’ll be ‘partying’ with both kids next Friday night mermaid/pirate style at the church.  Mia will be here on Wednesday to help finish up last min. details.  We are so excited! 

Hudson, I could not imagine a better fit for our little family than you.  I love you to the moon and back!  It had been such a blessing to watch you grow.  I thank God every night for such a healthy, handsome, happy baby.  I am so blessed to be your Momma!  We love you so much!  Happy Birthday!

Aww, thanks for making me cry with last paragraph. I was doing good, until then! Goodness!

Such a special and fun day for Hudson! Except for the scary FIRE part! Poor baby! ;-)

How cool is that water table?? I haven't ever seen one like that!

Happy Birthday Hudson! Aunt Megan loves you so much!
